Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber , ends trimmed
  • ½ bottle white wine
  • 200ml elderflower cordial
  • few mint sprigs, leaves picked
  • 2 x bottles soda water , chilled

Method

  • STEP 1

    Chop the cucumber into a few chunks, then put in a blender or food processor with the wine and elderflower cordial. Whizz until well blended, then pour through a sieve set over a large bowl or jug. Tip the contents of the sieve back into the machine, whizz again until pulpy, then sieve again into the liquid already collected. Add 1-2 tbsp of the cucumber pulp from the sieve into the liquid and discard the rest. Chill until ready to serve.

  • STEP 2

    To serve, fill glasses with a few ice cubes and some mint leaves. Pour in enough cucumber base to come halfway up the glass, then top up with soda water.
